  1. There's probably more, problem is, many of the "power trails" out there disappear totally if you zoom out past z=12
  2. Maybe they printed them on larger stickers then "hole punched" them out? You can get different size and even shaped hole punches at most hobby/craft stores.
  3. Permission issues don't "change" just because its a chirp vs a container or something else. Some places have a very open caching policy, where explicit permission isn't needed, some go as far as paperwork with exact details, others, just a quick OK email is sufficient. Found out existing caching policy for the location and go from there.
  4. In most cases its simply for trim, no real purpose, in a few cases it acts as a j-box (hides electrical wiring/junctions) but even thats rare. But, with their creator being a cacher himself, their main purpose is to hide micros's.
  5. Find logs commonly contain maintenance issues. Log is getting full, lid is cracked, log is damp, found it but don't think its the way the CO intended. Basic cache maintenance is reviewing the logs. If you can't keep up with them, then maybe its time to remove a few.
  6. Since gc basically refuses to even acknowledge ftf, doubt you'll get them to take any kind of stand on an issue related to it.
  7. No, you were asked if when you posted the log if it followed a particular sequence, which has been noted in the past as not setting the attribute. Specifically you were asked if you posted another type of log and changed it to needs maintenance. No one questioned if the log was present, and most people responding to you probably saw the log and didn't doubt its existence. A very realistic possibility. You failed to say that you looked immediately after posting the log. It would be a valid assumption that you looked the next day and the attribute was missing, a possible indication the CO did something. You failed to provide full details, then you argue based on the details you failed to provide. Failure is a sign of ineptness. All of the points suggested in this thread were valid points based on known behavior of the site, bug or not.
  8. You didn't offer that information in your original post! You need to get that chip on your shoulder looked at before it does some serious damage. Actually, there is a bug with the last login date not consistently updating. I know of specific instances in just the last week of someone logging in, getting information that can't be seen if not logged in (specifically coordinates) and meeting up with me, while the site still shows they haven't been on in a couple weeks. So yes, the chip is still there.
  9. Did you post it as a Needs Maintenance, or did you post it as a note or something else then edit/change it to a needs maintenance?
  10. Nothing the site could do could shut your internet connection down. Define what you mean by "losing internet connection", is your modem going out of sync?
  11. If a cache is KNOWN to be missing, leaving it active for a month is too long. It should be disabled as soon as there is any confirmation of it missing.
  12. You reply to him and you validate him. Flag the ad as spam. It should have been flagged day one, as the longer an ad is up on cl, the harder it is to take down (longer up requires more flags to take down).
  13. Sounds like an overly sensitive virus scanner, there's nothing in a .loc that would transfer a virus, even if it contained one the likelihood of getting infected from it is practically zero.
  14. What was the date on the most recent sig? Was it recent or several years old? That would be a hint of an archived cache. Did you see any GC or OC codes on it? What about a cache name? The CO's name?
  15. The problem with NM is that it doesn't draw it to the attention of anyone, and it just generates an email to the CO, if they are already ignoring their emails (CO's get an email for every log posted), then an NM isn't going to do much. I've logged Needs Archived many times with the note "Maybe this should be disabled until owner can check" and the local reviewer typically disables it right away. There's a lot of users that don't seem to understand disabled and refuse to use it. There's one hider in particular in my area, his caches seem to turn into high maintenance caches, and he will just post a note on it acknowledging its gone and saying he'll check on it or replace it in a couple weeks. Meantime cachers keep going after it not realizing its been acknowledged as missing. He has never disabled a cache on his own and typically leaves a scathing note to the reviewer if they disable it, even though the reviewer puts a friendly "when you get it fixed up just log an enable". He's been babied through it many times and still doesn't seem to get the concept. I do no think this is an isolated issue. A CO may take offense to the NA log, but until gs fixes this BUG, and gets reviewers involved at an earlier stage (like when an NM is logged) there's no better way to do it.
  16. The greatest majority of the "cartridges" were designed to run on devices that don't even have internet access (like the Oregon, Colorado, etc).
  17. From this page: http://www.geocaching.com/my/lists.aspx You can list whats in your ignore list. Don't delete the list itself, just the items in it.
  18. The current jeeps actually run Garmin software, not sure how far back that goes, but is true for current Jeeps.
  19. Games over! Sometimes the statbar lags a few minutes. Wait a couple and refresh the page.
  20. This is STILL an intermittent problem, I'm seeing it right now.
  21. Then you would have posted using your real account.
  22. Please refrain from voicing your social opinions, I am only looking for your opinions about if this violates GC.com's rule about promoting a cause. That wasn't posting my "social opinion", thats pointing out the clear double standard that liberals have. Big difference, although one most liberals can't understand.
  23. Wow, someone posts a cache that might make hint or mention of some historical fact in the bible and everyone is up in arms about it, someone posts about blatant sexual deviance, and its not?
